General DescriptionThese breakout boards bring all 15 pins of a DB15 connector (standard density, 2-row) out to screw terminal blocks for easy connection and prototyping work. They are available with both male and female connectors. The BRK15M has a male connector and the BRK15F has a female connector. Each pin is also brought to solder pads (5 per pin) at 0.1" spacing, allowing easy addition of standard pin headers. Please note that the breakout boards are manufactured with a connection between each connector pin and the corresponding screw terminal; no soldering of any type is necessary. The solder pads simply provide an area for making optional connections to headers or other components.
These break out boards are perfect for experimentation and prototype work, as well as for use in the educational laboratory. They are well-suited for work with I/O cards, CNC equipment, and any other device that uses a DB-15 connector. A breakout board is sometimes referred to as a "transition module", "terminal board", or "interface module".
For mounting on a panel, we suggest the rubber feet version (-FT), 1/4" nylon standoffs under the mounting holes, and #6 screws.
Technically, the correct term for a DB15 connector is DA15, but that term is not commonly used.

Connector StyleThese breakout boards are available with either a Right Angle connector or a Straight ("Vertical") connector. The terms Right Angle and Straight refer to the connector itself, NOT the relationship of the mating cable to the PCB. In fact, the cable mating to a Right Angle connector is parallel to the PCB, while the cable mating to a Straight connector is perpendicular to the PCB. These are pictured below:
DIN Rail Mount VersionThese products are also available with DIN rail mounting clips for quick and convenient mounting where DIN rail is used. Product numbers ending with -DIN come with DIN clips already installed and ready to mount. The clips allow mounting on standard 35mm rail as well as 32mm rail.
